Membership is now due for 2018

We have introduced a new payments process for renewals this year.

We have tried to make membership renewal as painless as possible for all concerned. Simply click on the appropriate membership button below, fill in the blanks as appropriate, click the Register membership renewal button, and make payment as advised.

Membership renewal must be completed, and payment made, by February 28th 2018. After this date, clubhouse access fobs of members who have not renewed will be disabled, and boats belonging to such members will be removed from the club’s boat sheds.

MEMBERSHIP DETAILS

There are various types of membership levels available. Club membership is available on an individual or family basis.

Individual Members

Seniors/Students/Unemployed/Juniors - €130 / €80 / €60

SENIORS: membership fee: €130 per year

STUDENTS  / UNEMPLOYED: membership fee: €80 per year

JUNIOR: membership fee: €60 per year

Juniors are under 18, students are over 18 but still in 2nd or 3rd level education.

Students will be asked to show a current student card.

Family Membership

Membership Fee - €180 per year

This is open to any family unit consisting of adult parents or carer(s), and children who would otherwise be eligible for junior or student membership. The purpose of family membership is to encourage adult parents and carers to become involved in the sport along with their children.

Note: The above definition does NOT include children other than your own or children of whom you’re the carer, nor does it include two club members who happen to be a couple. The question as to whether any particular application is suitable for consideration as a family membership shall be reserved to the committee. Each family membership shall be entitled to one vote per adult carer and one vote per child (aged over 16 on 1st Jan in the relevant club year) as registered at the time of approval by the committee.

Life Members

Free Membership + Paid Options

Life members have membership for life and as such do not actually need to renew their membership each year.

A life member need only register if he/she wants to register for ICU membership or to apply for a boat space.

Boat Spaces

Fee €50 per year

A limited number of boat spaces are available at the club, for a fee of €50 per year. Only fully paid-up members may have boat spaces. Members are usually limited to 1 space but may be allocated another on request depending on availability. All boat space allocation is at the discretion of the committee and its decision is final.

No member is guaranteed a boat space. In the event that you have applied and paid for a boat space but were not allocated one, you will, of course, receive a refund.

Canoeing Ireland Registration

All club membership must now include registration with Canoeing Ireland.

The annual charge for Canoeing Ireland registration is €30 for seniors and students and €10 for juniors. This charge is included in the overall WWKC membership fee.

Registered Instructors

Club members who are Canoeing Ireland registered instructors should renew their Canoeing Ireland registration with their club membership.

Note that this is a change in practice since 2012 as instructors previously registered directly with the TDU (training and development unit).

Joining the club

The normal means of joining the club is by taking part in a beginner’s course, which for adults are in the May-August time frame, and for juniors start with pool sessions in October. If you’re an experienced paddler interested in joining the club, please email the Membership Officer at membership@wwkc.net.
